Overview
Locations

A session on the spiritual insights of the Star Wars saga. While this franchise has provided us with unforgettable characters and places, it also includes prominent engagement with religious, political, and philosophical concepts. The presentation will consider how the lessons of this wildly popular modern mythology can inspire spiritual growth, as well as the relationship between the concepts of Star Wars and actual religious traditions. Special attention will be given to The Last Jedi, the controversial newest entry in the series (spoilers included!). Come discuss why so many of us continue to be captivated by the stories of Jedi, rebels, and a force that binds the galaxy together. Part of "As Within, So Without," an ongoing series on spiritual philosophy at Square Bean Carlisle, hosted by Thomas Millary (MA in theology, Drew University).
